Chilly Weather, Cute Hats

If you live in Texas, then you've probably noticed the weather has gone from hotter than hot to... pleasant? Yes, it is an unusual state for Texas weather and no doubt it won't last long. As it starts to get chilly, you might want to check on your cute crocheted hat inventory. You will not want to be caught low on stock!

This adorable picture was sent over by Melanie Melugin, one of the wonderful shoppers that I met at the Cowtown Indie Bazaar.

Melanie- these pictures are amazing, thanks for sending them over!

*Although adorable for photos, The Curious Cake Shoppe suggests wearing a little more than just a hat to tackle the chilly weather. But, just like this fellow above, if you get the hat right-- the rest will come easy! :D

Do you have product shots that you would like to share? Send them over to and I will post them here!

Thanks Mealine!

Cowtown Indie Bazaar Fall 2010

I spent several weeks gearing up for this fun event, and it feels like my feet haven't hit the ground since! That is exactly why I am so late in posting all about it.

Cowtown Indie Bazaar 2010

The Cowtown Indie Bazaar was a blast! I met so many new people and truly enjoyed chatting with and every one of you. I was very excited about this show, because I had worked on a brand new display and had several new product lines to show off.

Cowtown Indie Bazaar Setup 02

My mom came down for this show and helped me out with setup and sales pretty much all day Friday and Saturday. We had a great time!
(Neither of us like being in pictures that much, and so you wont see any of us, ha!)

Cowtown Indie Bazaar Setup 04

One of our brand new product lines is our hand crocheted hats. You can see several of them above. The pumpkin hat was a particularity big hit-- is it sad that I want one of my own to wear?

Cowtown Indie Bazaar Neighbor 03

Amber of A Shade Better Than Stick Figures, was set up next to me, which always means a good time!

In addition to her amazing drawings, Amber was also selling the sock plops you see above. Outside of being absolutely adorable, each one is completely unique and very affordable!

For more pictures, check out our Flickr album.
